Re: Strange clonking noise immediately after a bump

Bmw has replaced my front strut tops but the clonk remains. I shall do some investigation this weekend as I have some more ideas where the source could be.

Re: Clonking Front Suspension

I have the same. Dealer has changed the two front struts but no effect. 😳

Although this is the same dealer that told me that my i3 needs the pressure of the engine to run the aircon 🤦🏻‍♂️

Re: Strange clonking noise immediately after a bump

So my fix was just confirmation bias on my part. clonk is still there. I'm wondering if its the ball joint but not really sure how to check.

Re: DIY HV Battery upgrade

I did a trawl through the posts on the German upgrade from 60Ah to 120Ah and he actually said last week that after selling the old battery the upgrade cost him 5K Euro... That is a pretty good price if you ask me.

I just can't wait (fingers crossed) until there are some after market options.

Strange clonking noise immediately after a bump

So, my first post is an issue and I think a solution to my problem. Car: 2014 Rex with all options except for external sounder (bar the Rex inter-changeable options). Bought second hand at 47K miles (now with 58K), had 10 months of BMW approved used warranty remaining (12th December 2019 it expires)...
